English text; Hardcover (with dust jacket); 416 pages; 429 colour illustrations; 24.5 x 30.3 cm; 2,9 kg; May show signs of shelf wear.; Foreword by Maria Antónia Pinto de Matos; Chinese Armorial Porcelain for Spain is the first book published on the subject of armorial porcelain made in China specifically for the Spanish market. It includes important new documentation and information unearthed after years of methodical research by the author. From the 16th century onwards, Spain was a dominant force in European trade from China. First through the Manila Galleons (Spanish trade ships that criss-crossed the Pacific Ocean sailing from Manila to Acapulco) and later through an eastern trade route that traversed the Indian and Atlantic oceans, Spanish traders imported large quantities of Chinese porcelain to Spain and New Spain. Much of these wares were armorial porcelain intended for Spanish Royal and aristocratic patrons.This publication examines and discusses seventy-three different Chinese export porcelain pieces or dinner services made for the Spanish market as well as provides interesting information on the historical, political and sociological world at the time including insights into the individuals that ordered these objects from China..
